You may even approach a visual fashioner to make for you a banner ad design, which you will have the capacity to alter independently from anyone else. In the event that you wish, you may include your own particular pictures and content. You simply need to share your requests about the banner ad design with the expert planner and he will make for you a format which might be a guide for your future work on it. In the event that you are not ready to make your standard advertisement outline alone however you can essentially complete the work, you may request this administration. The format, which the website specialist will give, will just give you the arrangement for the standard promotion plan. Later you should embed your own particular content and different substance into the banner ad design.

Teachers - l'univers dédié aux enseignants - English for Schools

Teachers - l'univers dédié aux enseignants - English for Schools | ICT for languages EFL TEFL TESOL FLE | Scoop.it






From the interwar period to the 1950s, children’s literature grew along two axes that look poles apart although they both mirror the anxiety caused by the growing urbanization and the nostalgia for a golden age challenged by the two World Wars. On the one hand, it was the return of fantasy literature. Following in the footsteps of J. M. Barry’s "Peter Pan" (1911), works which have become classics came out, like "Mary Poppins" (1934) by P.L. Travers, "The Hobbit" (1937) by J. P. R. Tolkien or "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (1950) by C. S. Lewis – the first of the 7 volumes of "The Chronicles of Narnia". These were often blamed for escapism. On the other hand, it was the advent of stories that were deeply rooted in reality and whose protagonists were resourceful sharp-minded chidren solving enigmas to overcome harships. This trend is best exemplified by Enid Blyton’s novels.


Enid Blyton (1897-1968). A former school teacher, she is one of the biggest best-selling British authors with an international fame. She is especially known for her series "Noddy" (1949-1963), "The Famous Five" (1942-1962) and "The Secret Seven" (1949-1963). August 11th, 2017 would have been her 120th birthday.





In the second half of the 20th century, realism and fantasy were brought together by children’s authors who introduced dystopic elements mirroring the state of the world in the Cold War era. William Golding’s "Lord of the Flies" (1954) was a spearhead. From the 1960s, Roald Dahl followed suit with "James and the Giant Peach"(1961). He tried to satisfy children’s appetite for gluttonry and for all that is a little violent and disgusting while keeping pride of place to typical elements of children’s literature since Lewis Carroll: humour, invention and imagination.




Roald Dahl (1916-1990). Of Norwegian origin, he was born in Wales. Despite his father’s untimely death and bad memories from the boarding schools he had attended, he spent a happy childhood. He traveled the world very young before becoming a fighter pilot during the 2nd World War. In the 1960s, he started writing novels after bedtime stories he invented for his five children. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1964) was his first big success of many. He was convinced that reading helped people preserve the curiosity and imagination inherited from their childhood. He is considered as a towering figure of children’s literature. His works illustrated by Quentin Blake were adapted for the cinema by Tim Burton and Steven Spielberg. In 2005, a national day was instaured on his birth date. On septembre 13th 2016, the centenary of his birth was celebrated.



In 1997, J. K. Rowling’s "Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone" (2) was part of Roald Dahl’s legacy while standing out by its magic elements and its public school setting (3) reminiscent of Enid Blyton’s school novels. It immediately ranked on the list of best selling books of all times, propelling children’s literature into a new era.



Under the influence of the Harry Potter saga (1997-2007), children’s novels of the early 20th century have grown longer – they have doubled in size in 40 years according to American magazine Booklist – and they often come in series whose success often relayed by the film industry has not failed. Philip Pullman’s "Dark Materials" (1995-2014) is a best-seller and his work "The Amber Spyglass" was the first children’s novel to be awarded the Whitbread Prize.



British youth literature is visible and in full bloom. Authors of fantasy literature – whose readership has enlarged to young adults – rub shoulders with realistic fiction authors like Jacqueline Wilson or Michael Morpurgo – to name just a few who deal specifically with children’s concerns. Libraries’s youth departments now offer a plethora of books whose variety and attrativity have nothing to do with its early scarcity and narrow-mindedness they used to display.

The 7 principles of learning

The 7 principles of learning | ICT for languages EFL TEFL TESOL FLE | Scoop.it
In her keynote speech at the 4th International Congress on Educational Innovation, Jennifer Groff, Educational Engineer at the MIT Media Lab, unveiled the seven principles of learning.

These are: learners at the center, the social nature of learning, emotions are integral to learning, recognize individual differences, stretching all students, use assessments for learning, and building horizontal connections.

Groff stated that in many countries around the world, including Mexico, there are cases in which schools, educational organizations or governments, decide to supply equipment like tablets to students to bring technology to new generations and innovate the model of teaching.

"However, they soon find that these devices don’t give as much support to teachers or students as expected. Eventually, they dismiss such initiative as a failure. But why don’t these kinds of actions work?" Groff asked more than 3,000 people –most of them teachers.

"The problem is that they hope tablets will improve everything magically," said the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University graduate –who began her career in the classroom as a teacher. "I quickly realized there was a great disconnect between what I learned in education school and what I could implement in the classroom, so I abandoned that idea and decided to start working directly with the system," she recalled.

The use of technology is crucial now taking into a count the progress in this twenty one century and how childres and teenagers are familiarized with social networks and internet; for that reason, I consider important the implementation of google forms in many different aspects of educaction where educators have the posibility to explore different areas through this website in addition students have the chance to interact with the teacher without being face to face with the teacher.

Great Teachers Don't Teach

Great Teachers Don't Teach | ICT for languages EFL TEFL TESOL FLE | Scoop.it
The philosophy that supports such a great teacher is simple. Students learn best when they are in control of their learning. Students must do the heavy lifting of learning and nothing the teacher can say or do will change that. Real learning requires doing, not listening, or observing only. Yet what do we find in every public school and university? Teachers talking, talking and talking while students listen, daydream and doze. We call this lecture.
